Here is what to do. First, show us photos of the edges. Second, your hunting ground is at Wildwinds. Your key tells--and I don't have time to dig through them all tonight for personal reasons--are the lambda over the whateveritis in the reverse's left field, and the M over * monogram beneath the throne. Find one that is a tet and contains those, and you will at least know which type it purports to be.

It's the best online attribution resource for Roman and Greek coinage. For other ancients, zeno.ru is your go-to.
